Dinosaurs of pop and rock shall roam free in Roanoke this September.
Little River Band, whose many hits from the last century include “Reminiscing” and “Lonesome Loser,” is set for a Sept. 18 show at Berglund Performing Arts Theatre. Tickets for the Australian act go on sale Friday via 877-482-8496 and roanokelive.com, and are $89, $49.50 and $39.50.
The “Rock of the 70s” package — Foghat, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Firefall and Pat Travers Band — is scheduled for Sept. 26 at the theater. These tix are also on sale Friday, from the same sources, and cost $89, $69 and $49.
We would urge you to take a “Slow Ride” to the venue’s box office, to avoid those pesky fees, but theberglundcenter.com says that it’s still closed, due to COVID-19. Way to ruin our cheesy rock song joke, coronavirus. It is scheduled to reopen July 6, Berglund Center general manager Robyn Schon said in a text exchange.
Foghat last played the Star City in 2018, for Festival in the Park. Little River Band hit Rocky Mount’s Harvester Performance Center the same year. Neither had a full original lineup, but a classic-era member or two was still around for each.
